Borrisoleigh Active Social Club

The AGM of the Borrisoleigh Active Social Club was held last Wednesday night and the following are the officers for the coming year.  Chairperson Lucia Ryan, Secretary Dolly Bryans, Treasurer Eileen Slattery.  There was a good crowd in attendance and lots up for discussion.  

We launched our fundraising event to purchase outdoor exercise equipment.  We will be holding a Progressive 45 Drive in the Community Centre Borrisoleigh on Sat April 15th at 8pm. Tickets are €10 and are available from members of the club. We would be delighted for all support.  
A group of 20 headed off to Gorey last weekend for a great weekend of entertainment in the Ashdown Park Hotel. Acts included Louise Morrissey, Dominic Kirwan, David James, Simon Casey and The Celtic Brothers.  Some photos of the trip.
A number of day trips are being organised so hopefully it will be another successful year.

The kindness and thoughtfulness of the people here is very welcome. 🥰
